With the unofficial start of summer just days away and temperatures rising, window air conditioning units will begin to jut from building windows. How are the units in your building installed?
Property managers should make sure that the units are being properly installed and secured to protect pedestrians around their buildings. It is also wise to make sure that the unit has a dedicated outlet with the proper electrical current.
Building managers at a minimum should have set guidelines for residents to follow for installation. For better control, they can offer to install the units for tenants. Property managers will need to determine the best policy for their buildings and tenants to ensure safe installation of these units.
